WHY PLAY LEAPFROG?, the fourth in a series of economics films, shows through an animated Technicolor cartoon how increased wages based on increased productivity bring about increased purchasing power. The film begins with a brief introductory sequence showing two cartoon figures -- one representing prices and the other representing wages -- playing leapfrog as each successively rises on the cost-of-living index. It then shifts to show Joe, a worker in the Dilly Doll Company, slightly down in...

The end of World War II did not bring peace at home. Nuclear anxiety, anti-Communism and international political realignments fueled the Cold War and turned our country's media landscape into a battleground. In the press, on the radio, and increasingly through the newly emerging medium of television, business and labor struggled for power over the national consciousness. Seeking a prize worth much more than public consent, these opposing forces fought to redefine the economic structure of the...

Or, perhaps they'd just like to know more about how the stock market works -- about market opportunities and risks, stocks, bonds and dividends. If so, they will find the adventures of Fred Finchley as one of the best ways to find out what goes on at the Stock Exchange. Mr. Finchley is a likeable,...

In the film, a Martian undercover agent flies from Mars to Earth to learn about the oil industry, and finds that the...
